How sad – but I think Nic is correct, cats don’t usually bother hedgehogs other than to sniff them if they actually have to come face to face. Dogs – particularly terrier types – are a different thing altogether and I think badgers and foxes may also kill hedgehogs? Life is quite precarious if you are a hog! what with traffic and garden implements there is also the problem of garden poisons like slug pellets – often used – unwittingly – by neighbours, let alone things like parasites. I am learning so much about the little darlings!!
